Si Kris nag text..wag mo namang ipakulong si Noy— President Duterte
President Rodrigo Duterte revealed that Kris Aquino asked him not to go after his brother former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III on his speech on Monday.
Duterte attended the annual kick-off ceremony of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and Large Taxpayer Service 2017 tax collection campaign at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City on February 6, 2017.
“Si Kris nag text..wag mo namang ipakulong si Noy” Duterte said.
But he assured Kris that he didn’t plan to imprison former President Aquino and he only wanted to know the truth behind the Mamasapano Massacre that killed 44 PNP-SAF members.
“No Kris, I’m am not out to fight faults. I just want to know the truth” Duterte replied.
"It could be nice to hear or it could not be pleasing," he added.
The President said he would instead wait for the Office of the Ombudsman to finish its investigation.
"I am not going ahead with the creation of a commission because apparently the Ombudsman has said that it's still pending before them," Duterte said.
"I do not want to have a multiple incongruity especially if one finding fights with the other. So hintayin ko nalang," he added.
